yes the stretching question is arguable because i've heard different opinions, i personally can't hold a stretch for more than a minute! i'm working on it though...

Unfortunately for folks like me who can only do low to medium impact, jogging is not an option. =(

5/5 :) But I guess that's to be expected when I read this blog all the time and am studying kinesiology in school! lol.

I'm surprised jogging burns more calories than swimming. Good to know!

My physio would disagree on the 30 seconds. He said that you have to hold a stretch for a minimum of 70 seconds for it to be even worth you bothering and ONLY when the muscles are warm. Stretching with cold muscles is like stretching a cold elastic band...
